The 2015 Triple Crown winner and expected leading freshman sire for North America had his fee pending the outcome of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which produced strong results for the sire. From three starters, American Pharoah was represented by Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G2T) winner Four Wheel Drive and Sweet Melania, who was third in Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T).
At auction, American Pharoah’s 2019 yearlings averaged $407,169, led by an $8.2 million filly out of Leslie’s Lady that Whisper Hill Farm bought from breeder Clarkland Farm. The filly is a half sister to leading sire Into Mischief and multiple champion Beholder.
American Pharoah entered stud at a published fee of $200,000 in 2016 and has had his fee listed as private for the past three years.
